Contains a draft synopsis and outline for the video "Hope ... the story of Australian women on the Left". "Ruth Crow is a 'Red Matildas' who does not appear in Trevor Graham's documentary of the same name. She is a lively, funny woman whose politics and philosophy were forged in the aftermath of the First World War and the Depression. Ruth was one among thousands who joined the Communist Party, united in the belief that they could change the world. Although Ruth's politics were outside the mainstream, her wide-ranging interests - from childcare and urban planning to environmental concerns - were resolutely practical and can now be seen to cover the fundamental, quality of life issues of our century."
